BOSTON -- Bud Norris threw a simulated game in between the Orioles-Red Sox doubleheader on Saturday afternoon, going two innings as he moves closer to a return from the disabled list.

Norris, who has been sidelined by a right groin strain, faced members of the organization: first-base coach Wayne Kirby, vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson and extra coach Einar Diaz.

Norris faced four batters before he got a break in between innings. His outing was watched by numerous coaches along with manager Buck Showalter. The right-hander is 7-5 with a 3.62 ERA in 14 starts and has allowed two runs over his last 19 2/3 innings.

Showalter said after Saturday night's 7-4 win that Norris will start Tuesday or Wednesday.
